Waking up in Oregon The faint dim light and the sweet smell of rain In the back cab of truck or in the side seat of the van Oh man, it’s good to be here again I’m looking for that old white house Under the watch of spirit mountain I can almost hear my brothers’ words Hey I love you and how have you been Oh man, it’s good to see you again Painted hills, the passing canyons, Juniper And I always want you with me Nothing feels so sweet as leaning on your shoulder On the way back from California And I want you with me I drew a picture of, the mountains in Montana I sent it to my love Said someday we’ll move here when we’re older The moon rises over the hill tonight It never seems to be the same And I never thought that I would meet someone like you Tomorrow when the sun is high, I don’t know where I’ll be found I find I am blinded by everything I see Baby blue bridge I’m feeling kind of neutral here You’re my baby and you’re not near I’m feeling kind of blue Waking up in Oregon The faint dim light and the sweet smell of rain In the back cab of truck or in the side seat of the van Oh man.

I think I wouldn’t mind if this was the last day of my life I’m not talking suicide I’m just saying it would be convenient timing I wouldn’t mind if this was the last day of my life I’m not talking suicide I’m just saying it would be convenient timing I’ve got a bad case of the common first year blues You better run away or I could give them to you Oh I swear I’ve never been this cold before And I don’t know how much longer I can blame it on the winter storms But if you bear with me Keep collecting my apologies Storing them away but never throwing them out I can’t say whether or not it will be worth your time But only time will tell and baby when I’m well I shine I’ve got a bad case of the common first year blues You better run away or I could give them to you And I know I can’t keep putting you through this, no I can’t just write a song every time I’m in the wrong and expect you to accept it But I’m trying to stay optimistic But sometimes in my stay it’s not realistic With my bad case of the common first year blues You better run away or I could give them to you I swear I wouldn’t mind if this was the last day of my life I’m not talking suicide I’m just saying it would be convenient timing I’ve got a bad case of the common first year blues You better run away oh run away, oh darling run away With my bad case of the common first year blues You better run away or I could give them to you

I don’t know what I should think Something’s pushed you past the brink Thought I knew you better than that Though I knew you better Couldn’t believe it when you said “I’ll never be sorry, I’m never coming home again” Weekends last too long when you are gone Tell me what’s going on You were never one to let things go Days and hours always go so slow When you think of what you couldn’t do Stare in the dark too long and it stares Right back at you Shadow wolves are biting at your heels The ghosts of things and people seem so real They’ve all moved on to better things and all They’ve forgotten, why can’t you let it fall You were never one to let things go Days and hours always go so slow When you think of what you couldn’t do Stare in the dark too long and it stares Right back at you Out of sight, out of mind They said Out of sight, out of mind They said Why can’t I get these memories Out of my head

Between Us 05:03
Early morning Just you and me Standing in a garden Overlooking the sea We watched the clouds pour through the trees With your hands deep in your pockets You turned to me, and said “I’m just changing my direction I don’t mean to cause a fuss I’m just changing my direction Please don’t let that come between us” We descended A stony path Climbed bony driftwood fences Crossed inlets still as glass “Between the devil and the deep blue sea I was terrified to tell you And now I have to laugh, because.. I’m just changing my direction I don’t mean to cause a fuss I’m just changing my direction I’d never let that come between us”
